|Feb-20-09|| ||midnightsun88: Unbelievably,no one is commenting with GM Pavel Ponkratov's upset victory against favourite, Wesley So.|
|Feb-20-09|| ||DCP23: <midnightsun88> Pavel Ponkratov is an IM.|
|Feb-20-09|| ||Sularus: <MIDNIGHTSUN88>
i've read your first three comments dated Feb-20-2009.
you clearly have issues with So, his fans, or both.
you just had to get that out of your system, eh? LOL.
did you feel all warm and fuzzy inside when he lost?
and for the record, on the CG pages of his first two wins in this tournament, there was only one comment prior to this kibitz.
|Feb-20-09|| ||midnightsun88: Sularus I'm not against GM Wesley So,actually I admire him because of his recent victory in Corus C.I'm attacking some of his fans because some of their post were marred by too much pride and some off topic issues.I'm sorry bro...I didn't mean to hurt anyone.|
|Feb-20-09|| ||Sularus: <MIDNIGHTSUN>
I am sorry too if my comment above is not polite.
I understand you, bro. I, too, am pissed at some of his fans. But in this world, there really are such people. I mean those who feel the need to rub it in for victory to be complete. But know that not all of his fans are like that.
I just wish we (all Wesley fans) could be gentlemen in all things.
|Feb-20-09|| ||midnightsun88: Peace too.Thanks for understanding!|
|Feb-20-09|| ||death and glory: terrible game from so. he is just seems to sleep after the usual opnening first moves. when the game got out of the theory- so stopped to play. i hope his next games will show s his high level as he played in courus. common wesely!! start to play ur style!|
|Feb-20-09|| ||KERESOV: The 12th move is the turning point for Black as it will determine the contour of the game. After 12. Nc2 the move 12... Rb8 (or 12... a5 13. Nxf6+ Qxf6 14. Be2 0-0 15 0-0 Rd8 16. Qd2 Be6 17. b3 Qe7 with the idea of Qa5-c5 =)13.Be2 0-0 14. 0-0 Bg5 15. Qd3 a5 16. Rad1 Be6 with the idea of g7-g6 and f7-f5. Also instead of 15... Bf4, it's probably interesting to insert first the move 15... Qa5 as it threatens to push the pawn to b3 with a check and prevents Black from castling Queenside. We can't really fault GM Wesley So for his subpar performance in this game as he probably is very tired considering the continous string of tournament games against very strong opposition since Corus. One thing I know about this talented lad is that he will spring back into contention easily ...|
|Mar-26-09|| ||ChessEscudero: On his interview, GM Wesley So said that he is "too tired of Sveshnikov."|
Ponkratov's castling at the queenside on 24th move turned his positional advantage into a winning game.
|Apr-24-12|| ||MarkFinan: I think castling Queen side would have been punished by a stronger player, white could have all kinds of problems, it would be Interesting to know what an engine thinks of that move..|
I only just beat the par score on GTM though lol
